So today I went to fire up the car and am not getting spark at the plugs . I've swapped everything the pcm , ignition module , distributor coil etc plug wires checked the relays and fuses . Kinda stumped right now thinking a wire may be broken in my harness during the wire tuck. I'm going to do some more hunting tomorrow . Any insight would be great .

If you have spark coming out the coil to the distributor but not out to spark plug. . My guess is at the cap or rotor. . Or the cable going from the coil to the distributor. .

Got spark at the distributor cap end of the coil wire? Bad cap and/or rotor is also my guess. I've only seen it once or twice in a Ford but 90's GM stuff is notorious for perforating the rotor and just sparking straight to the dizzy shaft instead of out to the plug wires, it's rare but it does happen.
